Visual Cloud Computing Methods Could Help First Responders in Disaster Scenarios

COLUMBIA, Mo. – In natural or man-made disasters, the ability to process massive amounts of visual electronic data quickly and efficiently could mean the difference between life and death for survivors. Visual data created by numerous security cameras, personal mobile devices and aerial video provide useful data for first responders and law enforcement. That data

Johns Hopkins Team Makes Hobby Drones Crash to Expose Design Flaws

Sales of drones—small flying machines equipped with cameras—are soaring. But new research by a Johns Hopkins computer security team has raised concerns about how easily hackers could cause these robotic devices to ignore their human controllers and land or, more drastically, crash. Five graduate students and their professor discovered three different ways to send rogue

NSF Grant to Help NAU Grow Drone Technology for Biologists and Ecologists

Wildlife biologists and ecologists are data starved because current technologies for tracking small animals are time intensive and produce low sample sizes, said Paul Flikkema, Northern Arizona University professor of electrical engineering. NAU researchers have been awarded a National Science Foundation grant to develop an unmanned aerial vehicle to find animals in the wild that

Bringing Climate Down to Earth

Climate change can often seem concerned mainly with carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases far above the Earth—but researchers also want to know what role things on the ground play. Yuki Hamada, a biophysical remote sensing scientist in the Environmental Science division at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, studies the realities of

Researchers Work on Attack-Resilient Micro Aerial Vehicles

Drones are seeing increased use in a wide array of applications, including delivery and inspection services, aerial photography, mapping and surveying, and search and rescue missions. Integrating these unmanned aircraft systems, known more technically as micro aerial vehicles (MAVs), is expected to have a significant economic impact, with a predicted investment of $91 billion over the next decade.

China’s Forest Recovery Shows Hope for Mitigating Global Climate Change

China's sweeping program to restore forests across the country is working. The vast destruction of China's forests, leveled after decades of logging, floods and conversion to farmland, has become a story of recovery, according to the first independent verification published in today's Science Advances by Michigan State University (MSU) researchers. "It is encouraging that China's

Olin Drone Research Aims to Help Fight Wildfires

In a rare ruling, the FAA has granted Olin College a research exemption to fly unmanned aircraft systems, (UAS) or drones as they are commonly called, to “conduct research on its own behalf and on behalf of other research groups.” Olin is one of a just a handful of schools to get this kind of

New Ultra-thin Lens to Revolutionize Cameras

Scientists have created the world’s thinnest lens, one two-thousandth the thickness of a human hair, opening the door to flexible computer displays and a revolution in miniature cameras. Lead researcher Dr Yuerui (Larry) Lu from The Australian National University (ANU) said the discovery hinged on the remarkable potential of the molybdenum disulphide crystal. “This type
